PA Disability Transit ID Card

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has set forth criteria for a Reduced Transit Fare Program, as required by Section 5 of the Urban Mass Transit Act of 1964, allowing individuals under the age of 65 to submit an application for a Reduced Transit Fare Card.

Read these steps carefully in order to understand the documentation required to receive a Reduced Transit Fare Card through the Reduced Transit Fare Program. Customer Service will help answer your questions about this process.

First Step

Download and print a Reduced Transit Fare Card application here, contact Customer Service at (215) 580-7800 to request an application by mail, or visit a Customer Service location.

Second Step

The application consists of two parts. Part One asks for basic identification information; Part Two, defines the nature of an applicant's disability and must be filled out by a physician or Authorized Agency.

If you already have a Medicare Card...
Complete Part One of the Reduced Transit Fare application and bring it along with your Medicare Card (photocopies will not be accepted)

If you do not have a Medicare Card...
Complete Part One of the Reduced Transit Fare application, Part Two of the application must be completed by your physician or an Authorized Agency.

Incomplete or incorrect information could delay the processing of your application and may result in your application being denied.

Third Step

Reduced Transit Fare Applications must be submitted in person. You will have your photo taken as part of the registration process.
